Mum And Daughter Death: Charges

A 53-year-old man's been charged with the murder of a woman and her toddler daughter found dead in east London.

Roland McKoy, from Oswald's Mead, Hackney, east London, was charged with killing 45-year-old Valerie Forde and 23-month-old Real-Jahzarah McKoy on 31 March 2014.

The pair were found dead at the Hackney home at around 9am that day, and post-mortem examinations later found Ms Forde died from multiple injuries while her daughter died from neck wounds.

McKoy was also injured and was finally discharged from hospital yesterday.

He was due to appear at Thames Magistrates' Court on Friday 11 April 2014.
